If you ever fell in love with a place you visited, keep reading this post because this way it will be easier to explain what’s a destination wedding.
Destination weddings are weddings celebrated in a country or city other than the place of origin of the bride and groom. When couples think of a destination wedding they want to have and offer their guests a unique experience, where to mix the unforgettable joy of a really special wedding with the possibility of sightseeing in that region.
They are usually spaces that the bride and groom are in love with. It happens to many foreigners who come to know Seville, Granada, Córdoba, Cádiz, Andalusia in general and they end up in love and getting married here.
And it is that the South of Spain offers great possibilities for a Destination Wedding for many grooms. It’s weather, architecture, monuments, culture, gastronomy and of course the cheaper cost than in other regions make Andalusia the perfect place for a Destination Wedding.
Normally they are smaller and more intimate weddings since the guests assume the costs of the trip, the number is lower. Although it is also true that this serve as an excuse to travel and visit the city or region chosen for the destination wedding.
Imagine getting married with views of the Alhambra, in the Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba, in an old Jewish synagogue, with one of the incredible sunsets on a beach in Cádiz or in an old mosque in the middle of nature. Well, all that Andalusia offers for your destination wedding: Farmhouses, Terraces, Castles, Bullrings, emblematic places or in the middle of nature.
WHAT TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT DESTINATION FOR YOUR WEDDING?
1.- Being in love with that destination, place. If not, it doesn't make sense to have a destination wedding there, don't you think?
2.- Have an approximate budget for the organization of the wedding in that place. The best thing for that is to hire a contratar una wedding planner at the destination.
3.- Take into account the transport connections, since your guests will probably come from many different points. So bet on destinations with easy communication, especially the airport and train.
4.- Legal procedures to get married in Spain at a destination wedding.
- If your wedding is a Catholic ceremony you must have the Confirmation done and you will only have to speak with your parish church to start mobilizing the requested documents. Keep in mind that the documentation takes more than 6 months to complete, so do not leave it until the last minute.
- If your wedding is civil it’s better to celebrate in your place of origin and then hold a symbolic ceremony at the destination wedding. Since for example in Spain it is necessary to be living together at least 2 years to be able to marry civilly.
